Holiday Pies For NO AIDS/Food For Friends

Filed under: Civic Blogging,Event,Food and Drink — Morwen Madrigal @ 3:30 pm

Why Pies?

Food For Friends will be selling pies for the Thanksgiving Holiday to help raise much needed funds for our home delivered meals and food pantry programs. Currently, we deliver 500 meals a week and provide food pantry Items to over 200 people a month.

Unfortunately, due to cuts in federal funding, only half of the cost of the home delivered meals programs is covered. By purchasing pies from Food For Friends this holiday season, you will insure that others will not sit down to an empty table on Thanksgiving or Christmas. The money raised from the sale of just one pie can ensure that three people will not go hungry on these very important holidays. Each pie purchased means you are giving Food For Friends clients a meal to give thanks for.

About the Pies-

Palate New Orleans, a local cateter who currently provides all of the home delivered meals for Food For Friends,  has generously donated their time, talents and recipes to bake pies for our 2nd annual Food For Friends Holiday Pie Sale.

They will be preparing apple, pecan and pumpkin pies for your Thanksgiving feast.

Each 9″ pie is $15.00.

We always do “Orphans’” Thanksgiving and Christmas here at the Treehouse as a way to help those who are alone or otherwise not able to do it themselves. This year the only pie we will make is the pumpkin, the rest will come from Food For Friends. Our food banks are shattered and people are hurting. This is the time to keep in mind all of those who don’t have the Blessings that many of us enjoy.
